BC breweries offered up samples at Red Mountain Resort on Saturday.

Rossland Beer Co. and Fernie Brewing Co. were among the BC beer makers represented at the Micro Brew Bash, which for the second year in a row was held in conjunction with the Rossland Rubberhead Enduro Race.

Racers who were out to register and train for the day, and those at Red just to spectate, could sample beers from Rossland, Fernie, Parallel 49 Brewing, Central City Brewing Co., Mt. Begbie Brewery, Stanley Park Brewing, Phillips Beer, and Postmark Brewing.

Margot Phillips from Rossland Beer Co. said the local brewery participated in the event its first year, but since the brewery had just opened they didn’t have very many kegs to bring.

When asked why beer and mountain biking pair so well together Phillips said, “I think it’s all about the mountain culture. It’s about skiing, and biking, and being here, and drinking beer; it all goes hand in hand.”


There was also a BBQ and music from DJ Soulman to get everyone pumped up for the next day’s race.
